Bear on a tree - level 2

A black bear which weighs nearly 136 kilograms climbed at night in a tree. The tree was in someone's garden and the resident found the animal the next day.

Officials who look after wildlife in Florida came to solve this problem. They used drugs to make the bear go asleep. The animal then fell down from the tree. It was caught by the officials and moved to a national forest.

Interesting words: wildlife (animals and plants growing in nature), solve (sort out).
